I hope a "bar~top" counts for Table Top Tuesday. Mine is about nine feet long. I have three bar~stools now, but plan to get new ones and possibly another chair added.
Another view of the bar~top. I used a mix of dishes bought at Ross and from Sicily.
The above pics are the rooster placemats I picked up at Ross for $3.99. I picked up two different patterns, I couldn't decide which one I liked better. Why not both?
I picked up the above plate in Sicily. They are called Calecula dishes. They have assorted patterns. We happen to pick some up out of their dumping area. They have a dumping ground for those dishes that have imperfections. A forklift kinda truck comes and dumps them. Then, that's when "us Americans" run in and grab what we can or want. Then another truck comes by after and crushes them, this way they recycle the pottery. Yes, dishes and other pottery for FREE!!!!!
This is the other pattern I got out of the "dumping grounds" for free.
Above the matching salt & pepper.
And the matching cream & sugar.
Below is a picture of the end of my bar~top.
The rooster was a gift from sister from Pier One.
I wanted to show you the painted~tile look I did underneath my bar. I started with a base of gray paint for the "grout", then used quarter inch blue painters tape to mask the "tiles" off. Then, I did a rag rolling affect with 4 different paint colors for the tiles. There you have it, my faux tiles....
On my hutch above, is my Sicily fish plate. It's displayed between two Dollar Tree plates from a few years ago.
The above pic is another little serving tray from my Sicilian collection.
Below is another view of the bar~top.
A Mosaic picture of the bar~top and hutch displays.
